This restaurant is set in a lovely gardens with lots of seating available and a buzzing atmosphere. Great pasta, pizza, wine, dessert and coffee! What more could you want. Worth a visit. All the staff were very friendly.

Having lived in Dar we regularly visited Zuane. And with great pleasure. The terrace is perhaps one of the best in town ( together with Carambezi, seacliff). In a garden and covered by trees. A pleasure to be there. Also enough space to move for children. Pizzas are very good. Pastas might get some attention. However, the overall impression is... More

We had the pizza which was great but the pasta that I ordered was tasteless.Moderate prizes . Quick and friendly service. I suggest that they must improve their food recipes.

Many other reviewers have noted the inconsistencies of Zuane and the changes from one visit to another. This is generally true with this restaurant as well as many others in Dar es Salaam unfortunately. If you like Italian food, particularly pastas, good Italian wine, and desserts, Bella Napoli -- 10 minutes north of Zuane on Haile Selassie Road -- is... More

If you can't ensure consistent quality, then maybe your prices shouldn't stay consistently high either, and you can have the decency to inform your clients that you do not have a good cut of meat that day. Honesty and transparency would take you a long way in building loyalty. Beyond disappointed, and would seriously reconsider dining there again.

Good pizza, good ambience out under the trees, good service and selection of food and drink for most tastes, meat and veg. Everybody goes - couples, singles, friends, big families, business. Never had a problem. Always go back and enjoy.

You don't go to Africa to eat Italian food, but if you do have a craving for pizza in Tanzania, Zuane comes recommended. Proper thin crust crispy pizza as the should be. Next time I"ll try the other Italian food to taste if it is as good. Great atmosphere in the garden, where kids entertain themselves in and around the... More

...which is their core food group. I would steer away from anything else. Atmosphere is great for intimate dinners as well as large groups. Very relaxed. Service is good, waiters are courteous. Their chairs outside are really uncomfortable though- I always feel as though I'll tip backwards.
